We want to remind people that they are required by Municipal Code to register their alarm system with the City. Officers may issue citations of you don’t have an alarm permit or did not renew your alarm permit.
From the City of Spring Hill’s Website (springhilltn.org):
Alarm Permits are required of all residents and businesses within the City of Spring Hill that maintain an alarm system. We require an annually updated alarm renewal to keep our records current.
“Alarm system” means any assembly of equipment, mechanical or electrical, arranged to signal the police department and/or fire department that an emergency exists and the department is needed. “Alarm system” shall also mean any alarm device which automatically emits audible, visual, or other response upon the occurrence of any hazard or emergency and is intended to alert persons outside the building to the existence of said hazard or emergency.

- New Alarm Permit – $20
